Panopto

Panopto Focus is an easy-to-use lecture capture system. This software is installed on all the classroom computers on campus. You can also download it to your own computer.

You can use Panopto to:

  • record your lectures so that your students can review them later.
  • flip your classroom by creating mini-lectures for your students to watch before their classes.
  • record your students’ presentations.
  • record talks by guests.

Recording with Panopto

Powerpoint/Keynote slide

If you use Powerpoint or Keynote, Panopto creates a table of contents for your students, and also create a searchable index of your presentation. This allows your students to search your video presentation for any word mentioned on your slides.

Audio & Video

You can record with Panopto from any computer with the Panopto software. However, recording quality is generally better in rooms with built-in video equipment.

These rooms are good for Panopto recordings:

  • Sharpless Auditorium,  Stokes Auditorium, Stokes 010, and Stokes 016 have a SMART Podium and ceiling mounted video camera and microphone
  • Sharpless S113 and S430 have a Qomo Interactive Pen Display and a ceiling mounted video camera and microphone
  • KINSC H109 has a video camera mounted on the wall. You need to use the clip-on wireless microphone located in the Podium drawer.
  • Chase Auditorium has a SMART Podium, but you need to borrow a webcam and tripod from the ITC in Stokes 205; there is no microphone or video camera kept in the room.

Computer Screen

You can capture a computer or tablet screen. This is especially useful if you use a SMART podium or Qomo Interactive Pen Display.

Downloading Panopto

If you already have a Panopto folder set up in one of your Moodle courses, there are installers available to download within that folder. Press Create followed by Record a New Session. Scroll down to find the proper installer for your operating system.

Alternately, if you have Panopto set up in one of your courses, you can go to hc.hosted.panopto.com. Select Moodle f20/sp21 and then Sign in. Once you’re signed in, select “download Panopto” in the top right. Select the proper installer for your operating system.

Please contact the Instructional Technology Services hc-techlearn@haverford.edu with questions.

Clickers

What are clickers?

“Clickers” are handheld devices which encourage active student participation by allowing a presenter to poll an audience and receive real-time answers in aggregate form. Student response systems like this enhance the classroom experience by making it easy for students and faculty to receive immediate feedback from one another. Using clickers, faculty can conduct review sessions, encourage student discussions, and keep track of student participation. For more information on the pedagogical benefits of using clickers, see ELI’s “7 Things You Should Know about Clickers.”

Clickers at Haverford

Haverford has standardized on the Turning Technologies clicker system (pictured). This system is easy to use and works in both Mac and Windows environments.

Faculty interested in using clickers in a class should contact hc-techlearn@haverford.edu. ITS staff will meet with you to demonstrate the use of the clicker system and provide training on the clicker software.

Once you get the clickers, you will distribute them to your students , free of charge, and have students sign a Student Clicker Policy. This policy tells students that they are responsible for returning their device to you at the end of the semester. Students will need to contact the ProDesk if they need a new battery for their device, or need to replace a broken or lost clicker. IITS will replace clicker batteries or malfunctioning clickers at no charge to the student.

How do I use clickers?

Our faculty use clickers a number of different ways. You can learn about some of these options in our blog post, Increased and diversified Clicker use by Bi-Co Faculty.

Watch this getting started video to learn how to use clickers at Haverford.

To install the application to your computer, please go to the Turning Technologies Download page.

TurningPoint Cloud

TurningPoint Cloud is a robust program hosted at TurningPoint. You must create an on-line account to use this software. The College has purchased licensing that allows you to poll your class. You will have access to this licensing if you sign up using your Haverford email address.

TurningPoint Lite

TurningPoint Lite works locally and does not require a on-line TurningPoint Cloud account. It is very simple to use, but has very few features.
